Good app but too many mistakes are preventing me from learning!
Used to be a 5 star app, but the many glitches and you need to have "health" in order to learn new subjects, witch is absolutely abused, learning new things is restricted because of this.
I've moved into the number portion and one of the questions I got was to write the number 4 in Spanish. So I wrote out 4 in Spanish. Duolingo said it was wrong and that the correct answer was 4(yes the number) I thought that was absolutely idiotic that that was a question but the next time I got asked that question I put the number 4. Duolingo still said it was wrong and said the correct solution was the number 4, witch is what I put. So I went to report the question but it did t give me the usual options, all it said "there is a problem with this exercise" witch must mean plenty of other people have reported it too. But either way, I still got asked this question multiple times until all my "health" wore out. This isn't the 1st time I got a question counted wrong even though it was right, but this is the first time the mistake got made over and over again. Because of this I can not move on to the lesson.
And some suggestions, you should add vocab questions in the beginning of the lessons like how you do when you're a beginner in a new language on Duolingo. You should also offer explanations on why you got a question wrong instead of just giving them the correct answer.
Very convenient tool
I am learning Spanish for work, and I use this app every single day. I love that it's so convenient. I can practice anywhere. I also love their streak system, which keeps me motivated to keep practicing every day. I also love that they have the learning meters for each module that get low after a while, which is a good guide for when to go practice those modules again.
I have a couple requests. First, it's a little too easy. I wish there was more scenarios where you show an English sentence and I have to write a Spanish sentence. I think the reason that these are limited is because there are so many possibilities for a translation and it's hard to cover all of them. Also, I want a tool that allows me to practice while driving. Essentially, say a phrase in English and repeat in Spanish. It would simply be a nice way of practicing. It wouldn't even need to be graded. Finally, the course seems too short. I wish it was longer.
Ultimately, to really be fluent, you need to practice with real people, so this app is not going to make you fluent by itself. However, it is a great, convenient tool, and can be a big help for someone learning a language. It's especially awesome that it's free! Normally I wouldn't go 5 stars, but since it's free, I think it should be 5 stars.
Great for beginners, poor for advanced learners
For learning brand new languages, Duolingo is by far THE BEST app you could ever hope for!! 👏😍 I am learning Japanese, which I have dreamed of learning for as long as I can remember, and now it's coming true!!! 😱
But why I don't give the 5 stars is that the 'Placement Test' does not give accurate results. English is my first language, and I was in French Immersion from age 5 to age 11(SEVEN years) I consider myself bilingual but because its been awhile since elementary school i forgot a lot. But I still don't speak the language fluently. So I thought I'd use Duolingo to strengthen my knowledge and vocabulary of the language. I took the Placement Test and according to Duolingo I am only 32% fluent in FRENCH! It treats me like I've just begun learning the language >:( I also took the placement test for Spanish which I studied for only ONE year, and Duolingo claims I am 26% fluent! This just isn't logical. 7 years of studying a language vs 1 year is OBVIOUSLY very different! Not an 8% difference 😕
But don't forget I do think Duolingo is FANTASTIC for brand-new language learners 😃 🌏 As I said with my Japanese learning ;)) I am in no way trying to diss Duolingo, I'd just like to see some improvement in the Placement Test, allowing intermediate/advanced learners truly begin Duolingo where they stand.
Thanks to anyone who read my rant 😇
